Santa Clara University’s Center for Performing Arts kicks off a new season of SCU Presents on Sept. 29, 2012 with an appealing piano concert by the university’s own virtuoso pianist Hans Boepple.
Boepple has been teaching at SCU for 35 years. He also has a formidable reputation as a performer – starting with his debut with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra at the age of 10. And he gets rave reviews whenever he performs.
Boepple was First Prize winner in the International J.S. Bach Competition in Washington, DC, prizewinner in the Kosciuszko Chopin competition, and is a six-time winner of the Coleman Chamber Music Award in Los Angeles. And he’s performed across the U.S. from the Long Beach Symphony, to the Metropolitan Opera House Orchestra, and locally with Nova Vista Symphony.
On Sept. 29, Boepple has planned a program of audience-pleasing treats, including the virtuosic Rachmaninoff Sonata No. 2 in Bb minor, Op.36. Also on the program is the Mozart Sonata in C Major, K. 330, the Rachmaninoff Sonata No. 2 in Bb minor, Op.36 (Rev. 1931), the Bartok Suite, Op. 14, and the Brahms Klavierstucke, Op. 119. Ticket prices range from $5-$15.
